Dogs in Snow

The white stuff is melting fast now, but before that happened I snapped some footage of these Kansas City canines carousing in the snow.

Let me know what you think in the comments – this is my first attempt at video editing!

  1. Brilliant. You did a fantastic job. I can never quite get over how much like Litchi Charlie Machete is. The way he runs and jumps. Love that dog!

  2. That was great! They were really enjoying themselves.

  3. The boys were just having fun , they looked great. The music was fit to do a canine free- style routine and the vid was almost pro! Thanks for sharing with us in the tropics!

  4. I love it! Luke likes to stand in the tire tracks! BOL!

  5. Loved the video – way to go:) Happy Monday

  6. That was too cute! I loved watching Charlie Machete bound and hop through the snow, he’s a ham!

  7. This is a very fun video to watch. I can see this trending amongst the social networks. The dogs bounding over the little snow piles are fun to watch; they look like they’ve discovered giant new toy.

  8. Hi there,
    This video was a joy to watch, so thanks for the smiles! Now, I wanted to know what your thoughts are on dogs playing out in the cold weather. How long should I let them stay out playing? I’m always afraid they’re going to catch something. Let me know what your thoughts are on this!

    • That’s a great question, Alana. I can only speak to my experience with dogs and cold weather. How much snow or chilly temps they can handle depends very much on the dog. My min pin can’t stand to be outside in the cold for more than a minute or two, whereas the lab mix, golden retriever and our former husky mix foster will play and play in the snow.
      I also watch for clues that the dogs are getting tired. It’s pretty easy to tell when they are done or if their feet are getting too cold. They stop playing, lay down or walk funny if their feet are getting cold.
      If I know we will be out in the cold for more than 20 minutes, I outfit them in warm vests and snow boots if necessary! Hope that helps!

  9. Crystal,

    Thanks for the tips; I think I’m going to have to go shopping for warm vests; I’ve always thought that their fur coats provided them with the needed insulation. You learn something new everyday :)
